Great Scott!
Senator wants a secure community
Boston Globe -- March 13 
Immigration divides rivals in Massachusetts Senate race
~~~ /// ~~~
    In his bid for reelection, Senator Scott Brown is calling for tighter immigration policy and chiding his leading Democratic challenger, Elizabeth Warren, for her seeming opposition to the federal enforcement program known as Secure Communities.
    But Warren refuses to be pinned down on the heated issue, calling for a more nuanced debate. Though in the past she has appeared to oppose the initiative, Warren would not declare a position last week, instead calling for further discussion with police about how the program has been working in other states. [...]
    Jeffrey Berry, a professor at Tufts University, said Brown's position on immigration could play well in blue-collar communities that are largely white. The Republican would be unlikely to win the Hispanic vote anyway, Berry said, particularly this year when the GOP candidates running for president have taken a hard-line stance on immigration.
    "I think there is some mileage in this for Senator Brown," said Berry.

CBO: Obamacare to cost $1.76 trillion over 10 years

The federal assault on sovereignty continues   
The federal government's assault on sovereignty continues with the Justice Department blocking a new law in Texas that requires voters to show a photo ID at the polls. One lame-stream-media outlet reported it was because the Texas law disproportionately harms "Hispanic residents." -- Residents? Not, citizens? BTW, no harm was proven, only imagined...

On GALEO's Jerry Gonzalez, "hate," parasitic, smearing hucksters and the SPLC
First, my apologies for the repetition in the headline. -- It is quite difficult to type while holding my aching sides and trying to focus through the tears of laughter. But well worth the effort. -- While I will make it a often visited topic and expand (a lot) soon, it is my great pleasure to write about recent news concerning Gerado E. (Jerry) Gonzalez from the hard-left, wanna-be bullies...

Who is securing the Texas border?   
Roy "Mac" Sikes wasn't wearing a white 10-gallon like the other top Texas Rangers attending the 2010 Texas Border Sheriffs Coalition meeting in El Paso. Mac, as the Texas Rangers and sheriffs call him, was going hatless. But that may have been because it's not entirely clear which hat Mac should have been wearing – ranger, cop, or consultant?

Ron Paul -- Infowars -- Austin, Texas   
The Obama regime has gone rogue   
Have certain parts of the Constitution become irrelevant, as a former Republican leader once told me at a Foreign Affairs Committee hearing? At the time, I was told that demanding a Congressional declaration of war before invading Iraq, as Article I Section 8 of the Constitution requires, was unnecessary and anachronistic. Congress and the president then proceeded without a Constitutional declaration...
